We were all surprised but we understood when Chris decided to take very, very early retirement from her post at Eastbourne. Last week she stood down as Chair of the APP User Group.
Chris did leave an impression on the community, in only two years, through a period of rapidly accelerating change.
Change with heading the initiative to develop a brand new, modern website, a changing user group membership at national level.
Also a change in how Civica are developing a new APP, the workshops, consultations and negotiating to ensure users get a fair say.
I wish her well, I am sure many of us will be keep in touch with Chris.
